Château Pontet Canet

This is one of the finest wines produced in 2016, a quite magnifi cent wine that reinforces the rise of this château to the upper echelons of the Bordeaux hierarchy. Farmed organically for the past ten years, including the use of horses in the vineyard.

A beautifully contracted wine in 2023, Pontet-Canet oozes finesse and elegance whilst retaining the power and concentration of the Pauillac appellation. A deep and savoury bouquet, the palate shows a seductive creaminess with black fruits and liquorice, an underlying forest floor character and beautiful defined ripe tannins. The finish is long and impressive.
Château Pontet Canet can be paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. It is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
Harvest dates: 7th September - 10th October. Destemmed 100%. Aged in 50% in new oak barrels, 35% in dolia (bespoke made with concrete containing some Pontet-Canet terroirs elements) and 15% in 1 year old barrels
